Lemons or Lemonade


Life tends to throw curve balls now and then and as the saying goes when it rains it pours.  At the moment I am sitting here in a daze numb with being overwhelmed with life’s happenings.  Things have been piling on with one thing after the other.  At times I just want to throw my hands up in the air and say I quit, enough already and then out of nowhere a sense peace comes over me.  Just when I think I had enough God reminds me He is still there.  In this life it is so easy to focus on the negative that we tend to forget who is in control.  I know in life that everything happens for a reason and God will use everything for good and a greater purpose.  I know this, but still it is hard to go through.  I can look back at other times in my life when I was ready to say I quit and I can see how God was working it all out.  Don’t get me wrong when I say I quit, it doesn’t mean life; it simply means I had enough of the situation. 

Life is a crazy thing, we are here living and time goes by so fast that if we don’t pay attention it slips right through our grasp.  There are so many changes going on in my life right now, but in some places I seem stuck.  It is kind of like that movie “Groundhog Day” He keeps waking up and everyday it seems to be on replay.  Life sometimes gets stuck on auto pilot and I feel like I am going through the motions.  This is one of the worst feelings there is.  I don’t like being stuck, I want to be able to enjoy life, my family, and all God has to offer me. 

It is kind of funny at the moment the house is silent except for the clocking ticking in the background and our pug Molly snoring something awful.  Why is that we take life so serious at times instead of just stopping for a bit.  Life’s problems will be there after we take a breath but will somehow be more manageable.  God has taught me a lot and continues to do so.  However the one thing our relationship lacks is me not taking the time to spend with Him.  I can continue to focus on the problem, but if I don’t focus on the solution (God) than I am asking for a more stressful life.  I’m not saying if you spend more time with God everything will be prefect but you will be able to see more of His prefect will.  Life is full of choices and a choice we have is to let life bet us down or go head on and as the say take life by the horns.  We have control of one thing in life and that is our attitude and how we handle the situation.  So when life throws us lemons are you going to pucker up with the thought of it being sour and miss out on something sweet or are you going to make lemonade and enjoy
